Are you ever hunting for a top that isn’t tight but finishes at just the right spot on the waist so you don’t need to tuck it in but it’s not too loose and shapeless if you don’t? Well the intention behind this brand new design was to solve all those little niggles!
It's very rare to get vintage fabric off the roll, it's usually found in smaller pre-cut lengths. So imagine my ecitemnet when I found this fresh white and candy stripe in mint condition! It's like having a basic white top in your wardrobe that goes with everthing, but way cuter! Pass it off as a plain with denim or the print is low key enough to combine with a bold pair of pants or bright skirt.
The unique kite shape offers looseness across the shoulders, bust and tummy for an elegant yet relaxed look, which then slightly draws in to a flat front. The back has a softly billowing effect created by a little elastic along the bottom. This makes it ideal to wear over slim fitted bottoms like a straight or a line skirt, tailored pants, jeans or shorts. But it can also balance out a full or voluminous skirt without having to wear something tight on top. It’s a style that is super comfortable and versatile for both casual wear or work.
If you have our Lucy dress you might notice a similar cut to the neckline and sleeve.
It accommodates a variety of body shapes, including bust sizes and whilst being shorter than our other tops it isn’t a cropped style, finishing just on the hip bones. The model with red hair is tall with a small bust, fits a size 8 or a 10 and wears the 8-10 here. She also looks great and feels comfortable in the size up. The model with dark hair is average height with bigger bust wearing the 12-14 here.
100% Cotton. Lightweight but not too sheer, just needs a white or neutral coloured bra underneath.
As always, handmade ethically in Sydney by a small business in limited edition numbers.
Cold handwash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle inside a washbag using a mild phosphate free detergent. Dry on a coathanger and you won't need to iron!
